Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 July 2029 at 15:51.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1881" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2029 after 13 days on 25 July 2029 at 13:36.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 365 of Meeus index or 1318 from Brown series.
Length of current 365 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 366 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠279.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠309.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
7 days after point of apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 381 043 km (236 769 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 666 km (229 700 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 10 July 2029 at 12:33 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 July 2029 at 11:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after previous North standstill on 9 July 2029 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.399°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.380° in the next southern standstill on 22 July 2029 at 07:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 25 July 2029 at 13:36 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
